Combining biological parts is currently a very fuzzy subject. Parts are connected, in the hopes that they will match. When connecting, say, two inverters in series, though, it is quite possible that switching the output of the first inverter will not be able to switch the second. Previous attempts to measure these levels have run into problems. We hope to learn from this and try again.

As such, I am building a set of POPS based screening plasmids. If all goes as planned, these plasmids will allow us to measure the transfer functions of parts (inverters or other) in units which are proportional to POPS (with the same constant of proportionality for the part's input and output). We will then try to pair up parts and verify that the behavior is as expected.
